I've delayed in replying since I think John had really cleared things up 
here. To reiterate:

A KForge instance now runs off a single domain and there are no longer 
distinct project and admin 'views' at different subdomains. Given that 
the guide still talked about these two different subdomains I can 
understand this this may have been confusing (this issue in the Guide 
has now been rectified).

Within this domain you have the following url structure[^1]:

/admin/

Access to the full underlying domain model of the KForge system for the 
system administrator allowing them to enable/disable plugins, 
create/delete users, set passwords etc etc.

/project/{project-name}/

Administration of a particular project by the project administrator, for 
example creating and deleting members, creating and deleting services etc.

/{project-name}/{service-name}/

Access to the applications associated with a project service. So for 
example if one has a 'svn' service named 'mysvn' associated to a project 
called 'myproject' then the actual service instance would be at:

/project/myproject/services/mysvn/

while the actual subversion repository associated to this service would 
be at:

/myproject/mysvn/

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Rufus


[^1]: This is defined by the url.py class:

http://www.knowledgeforge.net/kforge/svn/trunk/src/kforge/url.py

Specifically _configure_mapper. As code remains more up to date than 
docs this should be considered the ultimate authority regarding url 
structure.
